How To Run A Meeeting

If you would like to know more about how Parliamentarian Procedure from Little Ben, click here for my DVD called How To Run A Meeting.

Can a past president be removed from their active role if that person is intentionally disruptive and fails to attend any of the meetings? I understand that they will still be past president, but can that person be excluded from the privileges of active board membership? Our by-laws allow for the removal of a member who misses 3 consecutive meetings, but how does this apply to past president, if at all?

Dear Miranda,
Look at your bylaws to see what duties are assigned to the office. Perhaps the office itself needs to be done away with. If the past president is not fulfilling his or her duties, then that would certainly be a case for removal. Any time a member is being disruptive the president can call the member to order and ask the assembly or the board members to determine what should be done. This type of behavior should not be tolerated from anyone! If the past president is a board member and there is a rule about missing 3 consecutive meetings then that applies to this position as a board member and I say the past president if a board member can be removed.

Cheerio!

Little Ben
